Surveillance video released by Philadelphia Police shows one suspect breaking into the Healing Pharmacy on West Chelten Avenue, while the other suspect is the lookout.

His odd entry style is what makes the video rather comical.  You can see the suspect  crashing through the roof tiles.  Large chunks of the ceiling come loose as do wires and lots of dust.  The suspect goes directly to the prescription pill area and starts to empty the shelves.

The suspect packs the pills into a black back pack and then tries to climb out the roof.  

After several unsuccessful attempts, he finally make it up and out to freedom only to have left his backpack behind.  He also left his protective hard hat on the dusty floor.

Both suspects fled on foot.

Suspect #1: Black male, 30-40 years-of-age, medium build, bald head, black pointed beard, wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt, khaki pants, white sneakers and a hard hat with Perryman Building and Construction in red on the front and the initials "D.A." in marker on the inside brim.
Suspect #2: Black male, wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt, blue jeans and sneakers.

If you see these suspects do not approach them, contact 911 immediately.
